Nelson High School – At-Home Students
Details For Your Photo Session
Graduates attending VSS are allowed into the school after the student population has been dismissed. Appointment times in the afternoon are only available to VSS students.
A $40 sitting fee is required to book original high school graduation photo sessions. Your sitting fee gives you a selection of 10 different poses with a variety of backdrops that are available to purchase, as well as an 11″ x 14″ Composite of your graduating class in a keepsake folder.
You will receive a confirmation email once your appointment has been booked.
Please arrive 10 minutes early.
All graduates should come dressed in a white shirt with a crisp collar. Men should also have a necktie. We will not be able to provide these items to you.
Your hands will show in some of the poses, so clean & presentable nails and your favourite ring will enhance your portraits.
You will have the option to take a casual portrait as well. Your own props (musical instruments, sports equipment, etc.) are welcome to make those photos more personal.
Guests, pets, and group photos are not allowed.
